George knocks out Byrd, ends the experiment in short order

Chris Byrd was knocked down three times (once in the opening round, twice in the ninth) and was totally dominated by the right hand of younger, stronger, quicker Shaun George, losing by ninth round TKO.

The undercard featured Jin-Hoo Kim scoring a first round TKO upset of Koba Gogoladze, and a hell of a six-round fight won by Ruslan Provodnikov over a very game, super tough Brian Gordon. We'll have much more on the card tomorrow here at Bad Left Hook. For now, we send our best wishes to Teddy Atlas and his wife, Elaine, and we also hope for Chris Byrd to retire from active competition. A proud man, a stand-up guy, and a tough SOB. But this was it.
